Last week, Edgewater Health’s Cedar Lake Clinic celebrated its grand opening. Located at 9855 Lincoln Plaza Way in the new Summer Winds Plaza, the new clinic will focus on family medicine and women’s health. Scores of community leaders and dignitaries attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony which was followed by an open house and facility tours.
“We are excited to expand our services to this community and look forward to establishing new relationships in Cedar Lake,” said Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes, CEO of Edgewater Health.
Family medicine includes routine checkups and screenings, as well as chronic disease management and wellness education. Family medicine is essential to preventing disease, keeping healthcare costs low, and improving quality of life.
As part of serving women’s health needs, the clinic will provide gynecological, first trimester obstetrical and newborn care through the family medicine practice.
“In Cedar Lake, we saw a need that is perfect for Edgewater Health’s approach: We believe it is essential to treat the whole person rather than just a condition, and our focus on family medicine and women’s health is a perfect fit,” Hughes added.
Family medicine providers at Edgewater Health’s Cedar Lake Clinic include Dr. Marshall James and Nurse Practitioner April Donald, as well as Drs. Deborah McCullough and Sharon James who, in addition to family medicine, also specialize in women’s health.
